it can mean in advance for some spots, to make sure they've got enough food to go around. some even offering who wanted to avoid the rush right before the game. "it wouldn't be our top day. valentine's day is a big day for us. right around the holidays also gets very busy, but super bowl game day is also very significant. we do a ton of carryout before the big game." jacob: definitely, worldwide, people love their super bowl food. we'll break down some of the consumption numbers from this day of dining football, when ten. jacob: and already there's a score of to . earlier today, i caught up with some folks metro to see who they thought capture super bowl 50. mike howland, des moines resident: "i think it's going to be a lot of fun. i think i'm jacob peklo, off prediction?" mike howland: "i would panthers are going to bob mendenhall, west broncos win the super bowl today because i'd time." brian gwynn, west des moines: "i think the broncos are going to win. peyton manning's going to go out on top." jacob, off camera: "do brian gwynn, west des going to be close. cam newton's too good to get blown out." moines resident:

my team. i guess i've got a lot of personal things i like about them and it's just that way. i just love them." ashley howland, des moines resident: "i think it's going to be the broncos because jimmy fallon did the thing with the puppies where he had them choose between the two teams and they chose the broncos, so i'm sticking with the puppies." hallie sallee, drake student: "probably because it's peyton manning. so, i think it's probably going to be a big game for him and potentially his last, so there'll be that little extra inspiration there for him, probably pull something off." jacob: now, not to say i don't have an original thought on this one, but i have similar thoughts on this one. what better story line is there for peyton manning to do what jerome bettis did for the steelers ten years ago, and cap his hall of fame career with a title. nikki? nikki: thanks jacob. we aren't all big football fans.... some of us look forward to this day for another reason.
